Got Animals? Use Fencing to Protect Your Pets and Farm Animals

November 9, 2016

Whether you are a pet owner or have a backyard farmyard, fencing can keep your animals in and unwanted dangers out.


Dog fenceStrong fencing is needed to give your dog boundaries. Fencing will also protect your dog from other dogs that may be walking by and may not be as friendly as your pup. Wooden, vinyl, or chain link fencing all would be a good choice for dog owners.

You may also consider fencing in a small area as a kennel. This way your dog has an enclosed place to be outside without being able to dig up parts of your garden or yard.

Fencing can also create a special dog run so your pet has a place to exercise right in his own backyard.


Some families like to give their cat an outdoor space to explore that is safe from large rodents. An outdoor cat enclosure can provide this safe space. Fencing can be used for the top as well so that the cat cannot escape using his superior climbing abilities!


Split rail fence or vinyl split rail makes a beautiful pastural scene as well as defined borders for your horse pasture.

Chicken Chain Link FenceChickens

A backyard chicken coop is a way to experience life on the farm while at home. You may think that you have to use chicken wire. But chain link fencing is much stronger. Building a chicken enclosure with chain link fencing can provide a safe space for the chickens to roam although it won’t keep the raccoons out. A great option would be chain link fencing with a wooden coop for the night time.


Pigs have recently risen in popularity as a pet. Just like a dog, a pig can be house trained and given a safe space to explore outside. Fencing in part of your yard can give your porcine pet a place to wallow and a place to root that is all their own.
